The Backyard Squirrel Connection to the Universe

My left brain
concludes
that it is not the half
responsible for
connecting me
to grass
and squirrels
and elk
and odor of mud

It is my viscera
gut and intuitions
plus any other part
of this body that
feels first
and thinks later
if it feels at all…

Does a squirrel
consciously consider
its squirrelness
while living entirely
in its moment
responding to stimuli
acting thru inheritance
moving by habit
smells
and genes

Sensing sunshine
then rain
frost and food
and blood

There is a
squirrel part in me too

G.J.G.
